Opportunities to do a PhD at British Antarctic Survey

British Antarctic Survey (BAS) delivers and enables world-leading interdisciplinary research in the polar regions. Our science encompasses the upper atmosphere and space, ocean floors and ice cores using state of the art technologies to advance knowledge of globally important environmental issues.

The BAS Postgraduate Research Programme works in collaboration with five NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and two Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) ensuring our PhD students can access training and development opportunities, be part of a strong student cohort and maximise their potential for the future.

We embrace diversity in all its forms, and by fostering an inclusive and welcoming organisation where people are able to be their true selves, we enable the very best science to take place.

Join us – we have a number of funded PhD opportunities available to start October 2021 through open competition. Discover more by looking at our list of studentships and information on eligibility, how to apply and application deadlines here: BAS website.

There are many benefits for doing your PhD at BAS. Find out more here.
